Yet another Google Earth data update

Without any announcement in their blog, Google Earth has added quite a lot new tiles in hires for various parts of Thailand today. Strangely, the new data is already also present in Google Maps, so I cannot use that one to verify which places are new and which not. As usual, the following list is probably not complete, but at least can point you to new places worth browsing now.

  • Surat Thani: Tha Chana, Ban Na San, Vibhavadi and Don Sak - sadly the town Don Sak itself under a cloud. Also, the area around Chaiya, but omitting the interesting part - Talad Chaiya and Phumriang town
  • Chumphon: Sawi
  • Phetchaburi: the town Phetchaburi itself, and also Khao Yoi
  • Samut Songkhram: Amphawa, Bang Konthi
    Ratchaburi: Damnoen Saduak - now finally the floating market can be seen in hires, though it's not really spectacular from above
  • Kanchanaburi: Sangkhlaburi
  • Khon Kaen: Wiang Kao - but which building there is the district office, Wiang Kao is the last district article in Wikipedia which has no coordinates yet
  • Chiang Rai: Mae Fa Luang, including the Doi Tung royal villa.
